Man, what are you smoking? If the break was disappointing, it’s because the big guns didn’t wait for it. The season as a whole has been one of the most impressive for premium games in memory.

I guess....

But I think I read that devs can set their apps to release during the App Store break. So it may not be over just yet.

I know what you mean but the week before was great with some great releases. But yeah I did expect something just before the break today

Yep, pretty much this. While sure, no surprises (other than Civ VI) came out this week, how nuts have the last few weeks been?

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

For strategy fans Civ VI is one of the biggest surprises in a long while. The only contemporary big name strategy game that would come close would be an X:COM 2 release.

Emulators?

I'm still keeping my eyes open for any new secret emulators released over the break. I lost most of mine with iOS 11.

And still no hidden emulators reported. When does the App Store break end. At that point the window will be pretty much over.

X-Com 2 would be a cracking release.... Hopefully with all the GRID purchases, maybe Feral will give us a port! Rather than 2k themselves.
